Saxum Heart Stone Vineyard 2015
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Composed of 38% Syrah, 38% Grenache and 24% MourvÃ¨dre, the 2015 Heart Stone Vineyard has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and beautiful scents of roses and kirsch plus nuances of salami, spice cake, tar, new leather and earth. Full-bodied, concentrated and full-on seductive, it has lovely rich fruit and spice layers, framed by rounded tannins and finishing with a lovely herbal lift.
Another perfumed, ethereally textured 2015, the 2015 Heartstone Vineyard checks in as 38% Syrah, 38% Grenache and 24% Mourvèdre. It offers lots of cranberry, kirsch, dried herbs and even a hint of dried flowers to go with a full-bodied, lightly textured, elegant style on the palate. I suspect it will gain a touch of weight over the coming 2-3 years and drink nicely through 2027.
A spirited blend, with distinctive dark berry, crushed rock and smoked pepper aromas that open to concentrated yet polished plum, black olive and licorice flavors that finish with big but refined tannins. Syrah, Grenache and MourvÃÂ¨dre. Best from 2019 through 2027. 410 cases made.
